DFM: Where are you from?

BAGSTHEBOSS: Ethnically I’m Dominican but I was born and raised in Jamaica Queens, New York.

DFM: What made you decide to get into the music industry? And how long have you been in it?
BAGSTHEBOSS: Music has been in my family.  My mother was a singer and Dominican Republic, nothing big just a few gigs here and there, my uncle was in a very popular Dominican band, so I’ve always been around Music & instruments. Listening to BIG was actually my first hiphop experience.  When I saw that big dude making music and how everybody loved it and loved him I just felt like I wanted to do that too.  I’ve been making music for 7 years now.
DFM: Who are your musical influences?
BAGSTHEBOSS: I was always a fan of BIG, The LOX, Mase, and Jay Z.  Recently I’ve been listening to a lot of Drake, Rick Ross, and Travis Scott.  Hip-Hop has come a long way since the days of BIG, so I try to listen to a wider range of artists not just rappers from New York.
DFM: How would you define your music?
BAGSTHEBOSS: I don’t think music should be defined or put in a category. The only categories for music I use is Good music or Trash. I would definitely put myself in the good music category.  When you start to label yourself or box yourself into one section you’re limiting your creativity which isn’t fair to the consumer.
DMF: What inspires you when your creating music?
BAGSTHEBOSS: Life inspires me and so does my mood. When I’m creating I just put personal experiences on a beat.  I might hear an instrumental and the feel might make me feel good, so I write about the best times of my life. On the other side I might hear a record that makes me want to express my hardships so I can write about that.  It really depends on the instrumental and my mood at that time.
DFM: What do you think your listeners will get out of your music?
BAGSTHEBOSS: My listeners are guaranteed to get a good time out of my music.  When I first started getting lost in hiphop it was really in the whole Bad Boy era.  When Puff wanted to make you dance. That’s how I enjoy the music so I enjoy making music for that setting.
DFM: How do you separate yourself from other artist of your genre?
BAGSTHEBOSS: I believe the way I separate myself from artists in my genre is by expressing my feelings, my emotions, and my experiences. Nobody else is going to speak on the things I’ve experienced the way I’m going to see them. It’s easy to just listen to somebody else’s music and talk about the same thing they talked about, but it feels different when the experiences are true to who you are. I’m all about the feeling of the music which is what music is it’s a way for me to vent my feelings out to the people.
DFM: What would be your dream collaboration with any artist or producer? And Why?
BAGSTHEBOSS: My dream collab would have to be with Puff. He brings an x factor to records that none has really been able to capture.
DFM: What is the most difficult thing you  had to endure in the music industry?
BAGSTHEBOSS: The most difficult time in this industry is getting people to believe in you. When you’re starting off , no one wants to take a chance or listen to you because of the amount of horrible music that’s out. Anyone with a microphone can record themselves which means more horrible records being pushed. So when it comes time for true artists to put their project out there you have to work twice as hard to make sure you get noticed.

DFM: What projects are you currently working on?
BAGSTHEBOSS: I just wrapped up “The Drive” which is sort of like a free album or EP that will be released June 3rd on Bagstheboss.com. I’ve also been working on my next project, “Young Jesus.”. I feel like The Drive was a turning point for me, as far as music, where I’m coming into my own. Which makes me want to carry that energy into my next project.
